Too cold for the buds!!
Apart from the viburnum, nothing else is opening, think it is too cold for them! Red robin, viburnum, snowdrop, and yellow crocus.
I feel fine after the vaccine other than my arm feels a bit bruised, not too serious.
We were out most of the morning, A trip to Lidl, the pharmacy, the plant shop to get my seed potatoes that we ordered - we missed them last year so this year we made sure our name was on the list. Luckily I had enough potatoes left last year that I could use my old ones for planting. We always grow Prospère as we find they are big in size and crop, also they store well for 8 to 9 months. After that, we went to Leclerc to do the main shopping. We found Duck confit on special so as I have all the other ingredients I will make cassoulet tomorrow which will keep us going for a few days.
It was lunchtime when we got home and I spent the afternoon making a curried vegetable soup with all the leek tops, celery tops, radish tops, cauliflower leaves and more and more bits and pieces, it tastes pretty good but I could never repeat the recipe as I just threw everything I could lay my hands-on into it.
Dinner tonight was filet d'églefin (sounds so much better than white haddock!) served with the last of the butternut stew. I did the filets in breadcrumbs mixed with thyme and some parmesan, poured a little melted butter over them and then cooked them on a very high heat in the oven for 15 mins, delicious.
Keep safe everyone and dry and warm, our weather does not look like changing for a while yet!!!
